Gefen Announces New Extra Long Range Extender for DVI Delivering High Resolution Video to 330 Feet

2 min read

Just a single CAT-5 cable can deliver high resolution 1920×1200 DVI resolutions up to 330 feet (100m) in distance with the new Gefen DVI Extra Long Range (ELR) Extender. Unique Gefen ELR technology based on HDBaseT standards enables this longer distance extension not previously possible over a single CAT-5 cable. The ability to use one CAT-5 cable can curb costs on lengthy cabling runs in the installation environment, also allowing integrators to tap existing in-wall cabling to deliver video.

This streamlined extender comes packaged in convenient, wall mountable sender and receiver units that can be mounted next to the computer source and at the display side. A single CAT-5 cable connects the sender and receiver, offering an instant delivery of DVI with no latency, delays or interruptions.

To further enhance performance, Gefen supplies local and pass-through EDID management options to ensure a constant signal delivery from computer to display, regardless of the distance the signal must travel. Both sender and receiver units are equipped with locking power supplies designed to maintain a steady connection that will not lose power.
